Kejriwal second most-followed Indian politician on Twitter


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has become the second most-followed Indian politician on microblogging site Twitter with over six million followers.

The Aam Aadmi Party chief trails Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has over 16 million followers on Twitter.

Kjeriwal crossed the six-million mark late on Wednesday. “And … @ArvindKejriwal crossed the 6 million mark on @twitter,” AAP’s social media chief Ankit Lal tweeted.

Both Kjeriwal and Modi are widely known for utilising the power of social media.

Kejriwal, in his early days as a politician, used Twitter to garner support and donation from his followers and fans. He later started using it as a medium to connect with people.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is also among the most-followed Indian politician on the microblogging world.
